Romelu Lukaku and Mateo Kovacic scored their first Stamford Bridge goals for Chelsea as the Blues beat Aston Villa 3-0
Romelu Lukaku and Mateo Kovacic scored their first Stamford Bridge goals for Chelsea as the Blues beat Aston Villa 3-0 to move level on points with Manchester United at the top of the early Premier League table.
On his second home debut for the club Lukaku was brilliantly clinical to finish after Kovacic’s through ball on 15 minutes and, after the break, the Croatian pounced on a poor Tyrone Mings back pass (49) to net his own maiden home goal for the club.
“The coach said before the game that when we recover the ball we have to play it forward quickly, Kova [Mateo Kovacic] made a brilliant pass.”
“My teammates understand me. I am very happy with the situation that I am in.”
“I played with [Axel] Tuanzebe before, he knows I am left footed so I shifted it to my right.”
“It was my dream since I was 11. I waited for this, I worked hard for this.”
“It was my dream since I was 11, I worked hard for this moment.” 💭
